The Art of Vandalism

Some of these doodles are simple, depicting what a lecture made them think of, or what they would rather be doing.

We have all seen it, doodles and drawings on the desks and walls of the school. Although most of us pay little or no attention to them, yet upon closer inspection, they can be quite interesting, showing a spark of creativity that can sometimes feel squashed in the midst of mundane note tacking. It’s a small window into the wandering mind of a teenager and, at least to a few, pretty cool. Now for obvious reasons I have excluded slander and blatant profanity, witch as it so happens makes up about 80% of the graffiti found on desks and bathroom stalls.
